Steak
Unbelievable food, efficient & fun service, & the highest quality products available, served in an exciting setting, seems like a simple equation for a great Saturday night out. The difference at Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse is that this is a nightly occurrence with the same excitement & weekend energy found every day of the week. As thousands before have discovered, it only takes one trip to get you hooked.

Always the best place to eat and enjoy a classy night out on the town. I've been going here for over a decade and even as a young man I've always been treated with class and respect, as if I was like anyone else of "higher crust" stature.

I have been to Gibsons periodically over the years when visiting Chicago, and it always has been terrific. This time it was even better. The steaks are consistently delicious. Why this visit was the best ever was because we met Elvis, our server. What a guy! He is so personable and efficient that the Monday night that we were there felt like a special occasion. Gibsons is great, Gibsons with Elvis is extraordinary.

El lugar es precioso porque escogimos mesa con vista al parquesito de enfrente. La comida es rica sin llegar a ser espectacular, quizá llevaba la expectativa alta y no cumplió. La carne la tuvieron que cocinar dos veces porque primero se les pasó el término y luego quedó cruda, pero eso si, muy amablemente nos atendieron.
La siguiente visita a Chicago mejor probaremos otro lugar.

One of Chicago's great steakhouses, still one of the best. Great service, great food, great preparation. If you visit Chicago and have some money to splurge, this is a must stop.

Gibson’s is always a special occasion for us and they never disappoint. The crab legs (my favorite) are always excellent and my husband says they have the best steak he’s ever had. Our server Mickey was on point and amazing in every way. She made sure to mention my birthday.

Unfortunately this dining experience was “off.” I’d say it’s pandemic challenges but we dined there during our last visit to Chicago last year when Covid was really bad and had a good experience. We always go to Gibsons during our travels to Chicago but I’m afraid it may have fallen off our “must” list after today’s experience. Crab legs were so tough, creamed spinach cold, creme brûlée overdone. My 12 year old, who is a true foodie, thought the mashed potatoes might have been instant. I hate to say it - having been a loyal customer for 15 years - has Gibson’s lost its top notch edge? I hate to share a bad review but I do so in hopes that the experience will improve for other guests.

Had a fantastic meal at Gibson’s. I had heard it’s the best steak in Chicago and from the ribeye I had, I would absolutely agree! We started with the sesame seared tuna, which was delicious. I had the grilled asparagus and caprese salad to go along with my steak and both were fantastic as well. Really glad I had a friend with me to share the strawberry shortcake I ordered for dessert; it could have easily fed 4 people. Highly recommend.

Quite simply one of the best, if not thee Best food & service I have experienced period. I was very negative on Chicago coming from a small Midwest city. The chaos and noise of Chicago is just annoying. The ambiance in Gibson feels like watching an episode of Cheers, but with the finest Steakhouse in the country as the setting. The porterhouse steak I ordered was cook to perfection, the twice baked potato was perfect, and the mix of breads was great. The server for my visit was Super professional and courteous. He made us feel like we were his top concern. I do customer service, and it was amazing to see someone better than me in caring for the customer. I was completely impressed, and surprised at the all around quality of the meal and service. This is a bucket list dining experience.

The waiter i had did not come back after I ordered until I was finished eating. Had to ask another waiter for more water. The food was good but there are better places in Chicago so this time it was a little disappointing, not up to par.
